I figured Grubdog can’t have all the fun with talking about first impressions of the Nintendo Switch, but while he has fancy pictures he took himself, my impressions are going to be picture-less. Unlike Grub, my local EB Games did not have a midnight launch. It did open at 8:30 a.m. local time, and there … Continue reading Switch Impressions – Matto Edition
A lot has changed in a decade. Suddenly I'm holding a baby and the world is mirrored. I must be getting old too, because my movement feels sluggish. It takes me longer to stop, and I can't even walk and aim at the same time. It's like my legs lock into place, I can't move … Continue reading Twilight Princess HD – I’m a Hero Now
We're BACK! Join Grubdog, Bill, Deguello and Matto for some hype and speculation about the Nintendo Switch. With the official event approaching next week (January 12-13), we thought we'd get together to talk about the build-up, games, third party support, and the hardware itself. It's been a while since the last podcast, so we made … Continue reading Pietriots Radio – Episode 4 (Switchmas Eve Speculation!)
It's been a pretty good year. Not a great one, but pretty good. We've seen some heavy hitters on 3DS with Fire Emblem Fates and Kirby Planet Robobot, and intense console action with Star Fox Zero and some memorable Splatfests. Dragon Quest 7, Federation Force and Color Splash are brand new games that just released … Continue reading Nintendo still loves us
We've all done it. You're playing your favourite legendary videogame with a very important quest to do. Traveling across a field to your next destination, your mind is heavy with responsibility. If only there was something to ease the tension. Swaying in the wind, something catches your eye... fresh grass. Thick, luscious, green, just begging … Continue reading The Legend of Kusakari – Freshly Cut Justice
The universe is descending into chaos as the war between Heaven and Hell gets complicated. The Charred Council created The Four Horsemen, giving them the task of enforcing law and maintaining balance across multiple dimensions. Humanity emerges in a third dimension named Earth between Heaven and Hell, and this is where the real trouble begins. … Continue reading Darksiders II – Death of the Wild
It's been two years since we got our first look at Zelda U, and now there's less than two days until the hood is finally pulled off the secretive title. We sadly will not see the game released in time for its 30th anniversary, with it being delayed to next year (likely to NX launch … Continue reading This is the new world of Zelda…
Exclusive to the My Nintendo rewards program comes a new chapter in the Zelda series. For hardcore Nintendo fans only, this game takes place in a dark timeline where Link dies and the player never continues the game. Midna gets bored of waiting, and starts carving out numbers on the spines of soldiers. "Hold still!" … Continue reading The Legend of Midna: Twilight Picross
A close examination over the opposing outrage narratives concerning Fire Emblem.
WAHOOOO!! With a well-timed jump over an Octorok spike trap, Phantom Hourglass has landed on the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe and Australia. Unfortunately it has not made its way to America yet, but I'm sure the fog will lift soon. There's a lot of baddies out on the ocean so you have to … Continue reading Phantom Hourglass HD Edition – Sailing the 192p Seas
ARROOOOOO!! This game has jumped into the spotlight with the recently announced Twilight Princess HD for Wii U so I thought it was a good time for a writeup. I started replaying this on a whim a few weeks ago and have become completely absorbed in its world. Being such a gigantic game, I haven't … Continue reading Twilight Princess – I’m A Wolf Now
Nintendo's been distributing *HELLO* demo codes for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes on 3DS and *HELLO* I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some from Nintendo Australia. I say lucky because their *HELLO* email system is shitty and unreliable, and these are seemingly distributed randomly. With the death of Club Nintendo … Continue reading Tri Force Heroes – Demo Impressions!!
